We’ve spilled a lot of (virtual) ink documenting how much we love Suki Waterhouse, but it’s not just her model credentials and amazing wardrobe we’re enamoured with. Us beauty girls have long been obsessed with Suki’s beauty, too. What with her fresh skin, that incredible head of tousled waves, awesome blunt fringe, and doll-like lashes, the 22-year-old model is one of our real beauty crushes.
However, it turns out that the Brit Burberry model isn’t actually the high maintenance kinda girl we’d expected. And this is something, we think, considering that Suki is the daughter of one of London’s leading plastic surgeons. In a recent, and rather frank interview with Into The Gloss, Waterhouse revealed that her skincare regime hasn’t quite been up to scratch and that she often cuts her hair with KITCHEN scissors.

She’s only just started to wash her face
"I do try to wash my face before I go to bed now, which I never really used to do. Sometimes, if it's really dire, I won't, but most times I get around to it, even if it's just with water. I do keep Lancôme Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover by the bed with some little wipes, so I can just roll over and do it.”
…And she is pretty lazy when it comes to getting ready for bed
"I sleep in my clothes all the time, actually - in my coat. I just hate getting changed for bed; I like the idea of falling asleep in a natural way. It's a bad habit, but I will sleep in all my clothes, under the covers. I don't know, it's a comfort thing; I just want to be constantly wrapped in stuff."

She likes to dry out her skin
Suki revealed that she is a fan of the Obagi range of cleansers, toners and SPFs: "it dries you out quite a lot, but it tightens everything and when everything is tighter it feels like nothing can creep through into the skin."
…But she has the perfect remedy for adding some moisture
"I will do crazy skincare things in the kitchen… I love coconut oil, so if I come home at night feeling all dry and like a fossil I'll put my hand in a jar of coconut oil and just mush it over my face. I'll put it in my hair, too, and sleep like that…in my coat. Just kidding, I wouldn't do that in my coat."
She regrets never wearing suncream
"I just saw these spots and I was like, 'Oh my god!” she explains, "I don't like it [sun cream], but I've got these sun spots that popped up a few months ago," she frets. "I've started treatment, but my mum was saying she has the same thing. It's because I've been so careless with sun cream my whole life - going on holiday and getting burned all the time, and being in the sun in LA and never wearing sun cream."

Her dad is her skincare hero (and is the brains behind Grazia fave Heal Gel)
Suki’s father runs Waterhouse skin clinics in London, where she fits in a weekly beauty cupboard raid: “I’m so lucky, I just go in there every week and raid the products and say, ‘Give me a facial!’”
She wants to cut off her fringe
“I’m thinking of growing out my fringe, I’ve just gotten so tired of it… It’s a nightmare. I’ll just end up cutting it with a pair of kitchen scissors. It’s just so hard to get it to look nice.”
…And she hates her flat baby hair
"I'm always using Bumble and Bumble for my hair, especially the Prep Spray. My hair is like flat baby hair after I wash it, so it needs something in it to get that 'day after' texture. Then also I will use Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, or just a bit of dry shampoo from the drugstore.”
She admits she hasn’t got the skills for make-up
"I'm not very well-coordinated in some ways - my fingers are just all over the place... I'm s**t at doing eye make-up."
